What About Those Free Programs?
When you start looking for antivirus software for your business, you are going to see that there are numerous free programs available. The big question for many people is whether or not this free software is any good at all or if it should be avoided. What you are going to find is that the majority of these free programs work pretty well, if you like limited features, no support and constant advertising.
However, this free antivirus software is intended mainly for home use and is often limited in scope and often does not have all of the features activated. While this might work for use in a home setting, when you are trying to protect your business and all of the sensitive data that is stored in your database, this is not good enough.
Using free AV software may also be illegal for business use from a licensing perspective, so ‘buyer’ beware!
You are going to need a layered security approach such as that offered by Software Security Solutions consisting of the full versions of more than one program to ensure you are fully protected.
